"TRADE IN YOUR REPORT CARD" ::: © JTK.CA

"TRADE IN YOUR REPORT CARD" by JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans Chapter 7 is one of my favourite scriptures, in which the apostle Paul laments the fact that he sins even though he is a believer. The only difference between the believer and the unbeliever is that Jesus hands us his report card and the believer accepts it. The unbeliever rejects Jesus' report card because the unbeliever is selfish and wants the grade he himself earned, even if it is an F. Basically, we either get an A+ with Jesus' report card in our hands, or we get an F for our own Fallen attempts at righteousness, as we stubbornly hold onto the evidence on our own report card. And everyone on the planet starts with an F. And if they have the A+, it's only because Jesus gifted them his report card in exchange for their pathetic one. It does not mean they become sinless. In fact, the closer they get in their relationship with God, the more they will be aware of their sin and their need for Jesus' report card. Our perfection comes in the next life, not this one. Read Romans 7
and see.

1 John 2:1
GOD'S WORD® Translation (©1995)
"My dear children, I'm writing this to you so that you will not sin. Yet, if anyone does sin, we have Jesus Christ, who has God's full approval. He speaks on our behalf when we come into the presence of the Father."

*

When a self-anointed "Perfect Christian" points to a believer and says,
"You're a sinner!"
the believer should simply respond,
"Duh! That's why I'm a believer!"

Our perfection comes in the next life, not this one. That's another reason we need Jesus -- to help us through our current lives.
